On & off the water

Dip a toe in the water

Prepare to set sail…

It’s all on your doorstep when you stay with us – from world-class sailing, wild swimming and paddle boarding to fishing, coasteering and kayaking. For the ultimate adventure, how about back-to-nature fun with Gylly Adventures watersports? Simply speak to us about booking a private lesson or tour, and choose to launch straight from The Greenbank’s private pontoons or from Gyllyngvase beach.

Or take to the water for a morning or afternoon with Falmouth School of Sailing. Even better, as a guest you will save 15% when you quote GREENBANK.

Leap aboard…

The Fal River is made up of a unique system of waterways which stretch from Truro to Falmouth. Cruise through the Carrick Road estuary to the Roseland peninsula, Truro or St Mawes – we can arrange it all for you. Just ask our reception team about water taxis from our pontoons, luxury yacht charters, and our exclusive Fal River Mussel Card discounts.

Or if you fancy the independence of hiring your own boat, our guests can enjoy 10% discount with Falmouth Boat Hire. You don’t need any prior experience – we’ll give you full instructions and a trusty map, and we’re on the end of the phone for your entire trip.

With so many things to do on and off shore, you’ll be spoilt for choice. See our ideas below and check out our on shore guide too!
